Presenting each of the world’s writing systems with a glyph, this website visualises the first step of “The Missing Scripts Project”, a long-term research project aimed at identifying writing systems that are not yet encoded in Unicode standard. Consistently satis­fying modern responsive web design standards, the website provides playful access on nearly all devices. Users can browse, swipe, sort and scroll freely through 292 writing systems without having to type a single letter. The successful website is complemented by additional information on each font system to be found as links below the individual glyphs.
